Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz may ultimately fight again someday, but it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon.

Former Strikeforce champion Diaz tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his controversial five-round clash with former WEC titleholder Condit at this past weekend's UFC 143 event.

That's according to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer, who today emailed the event's drug-testing results to (

Diaz was one of 18 fighters on the card tested for performance-enhancing drugs and drugs of abuse. The remaining tests received to date have thus far all been negative.

Diaz will ultimately have to appear before the NSAC to address the failed screen. Barring a successful appeal, the offense will serve as Diaz's second infraction under the commission's watch. Diaz also tested positive for marijuana following a 2007 win over Takanori Gomi at PRIDE 33. Diaz was suspended for six months for that offense, and the result of the bout was changed to a no-contest.

It's not performance enhancing and it's not illegal for him to use it in his home state. Should not be banned.

Well it's a banned substance with the NSAC, doesn't matter if he has a card to use in his home state, he didn't fight there. As said countless times, the sticky icky can be used as a pain reliever, so that's one of the biggest problems with it being legal .

Sucks Diaz couldn't stay clean for a few weeks, to get through the fight. I know he suffers from social anxiety, but he should have a counselor or something to help him when he isn't smoking to get through all the media shit.

I was going to say, you think he would be a little more smart about shit like that....but then again, he is after all, an idiot.

Not sure Diaz or the NSAC says, but for the fans it sucks to see one of the best and most exciting fighters in the sport sidelined because of head problems and bs laws.

If Nick was smoked during the fight itself IT IS performance enhancing. If it was just in his system from anytime before that day....there should be no issue. A smoked fighter can get into "the zone" and perform better than normal. Like I said though....if he just had it in his should be no big deal.

NO WAY! He was high wonder his tactics haven't changed in over a half dozen fights.
